Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - August 2016 YTD
Canada SUV/Crossover Rankings By Model - August 2016 YTD


New vehicle sales are roughly nine times stronger in the U.S. than in Canada, yet sales of the nascent three-vehicle four-vehicle category, now including the Mercedes-Benz GLA-related Infiniti QX30, are less than five times stronger in the U.S. than in Canada.

Up a class in terms of size and expense, the Audi Q5-led small premium crossover category attracts 7.6 times more buyers in the U.S. than in Canada. Q5 sales are particularly strong in Canada, where it was the best-selling premium brand utility vehicle in 2015 and ranks a close second in 2016's first eight months. Six times more Q5s are sold in the U.S. than in Canada.

The Canadian appetite for luxury utility vehicles isn't confined only to small crossovers. The Mercedes-Benz GLE, Canada's top-selling premium brand utility vehicle, sells 6.3 times more often in the U.S. in Canada, a far cry from the near-9X gap of the market overall. Audi Q7 sales are only 6.5 times more common in the U.S.; BMW X5 sales only 6.7 times more common.

Partly to credit is the strength of the Canadian SUV/crossover market overall. While SUVs and crossovers account for 38.5% of the U.S. new vehicle market and only recently began outselling cars, SUVs/crossovers account for 39% of the Canadian market and outsell cars every single month.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains you'll see the XC70 listed with luxury cars as well as with SUVs and crossovers and the Touareg with luxury SUVs and mainstream SUVs... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
